The firm's technology can perform in-droplet centrifugation, 10-second cell lysis, and sound wave-based PCR on the surface of an inexpensive polymer chip.

The firm said that the Resistance GC assay will allow doctors to treat up to 70 percent of infected patients with a single dose of ciprofloxacin.

The nucleic acid diagnostic platform they are developing doesn't require expensive optics, and it could be available as a manufacturing prototype in about a year.

The agreements involve the commercialization of the NeuMoDx 288 and 96 platforms for fully integrated, sample-to-answer, PCR-based molecular diagnostic testing.

The Ann Arbor, Michigan-based firm will compete with a few well-established players offering systems that can run in vitro diagnostic tests as well as lab-developed tests. 

Formerly known as SlipChip Corp, the firm has recently won nearly $10 million in funding to hone its approaches to sepsis and CT/NG testing.

An analysis of more than 1,000 Neisseria gonorrhoeae genomes provided insights into antibiotic resistance patterns and related genomic features.

The award will go toward development of Talis Bio's SlipChip POC technology for pathogen identification and antibiotic-susceptibility testing.

The company unveiled forthcoming products for high-throughput molecular testing, diagnostic lab informatics, and microbiology automation.

The firm said that its Cobas CT/NG real-time PCR assay is the first available in the US for the testing of sexually transmitted infections on its 6800 and 8800 systems.
